Inspection of South St. Reconstruction, Vernon, CT
Inspection services for the South Street Road Reconstruction Project, Vernon, CT
Cardinal Engineering provided complete engineering services for reconstruction of 4,700’ of Urban Collector roadway located within a dense residential neighborhood with an ADT of 2,900vpd. Services included: survey, design, contract administration, and full-time resident engineering services.
The roadway was unsafe for bicyclists and pedestrians with a 24’ width without shoulders or sidewalks, and, in most areas, without a snow shelf. Several houses with steep driveways are within close proximity to the roadway. Therefore, the roadway was widened to a uniform 26’ width with a sidewalk on one side. Other improvements included lowering a vertical crest curve with very limited sight distance, and improving a horizontal curve to improve sight lines. The project also included improvements to twelve (12) intersections to increase intersection sight distance.
Funding for this project will be provided by the CTDOT under the STP Urban Program.
Project cost: $3,000,000
